The prior weeks’ themes were all about Search Engine Optimization. Today, we’d like to introduce you to one of the most widely utilized SEO tools by a diverse group of people working toward a shared objective. We all know that Google has produced a plethora of free tools for digital marketers, company owners, and anybody else who needs them, and because we’re talking about SEO, we thought we’d offer some information on the tool Google Search Console.
Google Search Console is a free Google web service that was formerly known as Google Webmaster when it was first introduced. It’s a collection of tools and resources that analyzes the traffic and visibility of your website in organic Google searches. It enables you to keep track of, maintain, and resolve issues with your website. You may also gain insights and strategize to improve the performance of your website. Furthermore, you will be able to determine whether Google search can locate and crawl your website, as well as your site’s rating in Google.
You might be wondering how it differs from Google Analytics, which appears to provide the same function. This isn’t totally true, though. While Google Search Console focuses on tracking organic search traffic from a single source, Google Analytics collects data and traffic from a variety of sources and linkages. Although, they are both tools that would give you overall valuable insights of your site.
You may have someone manage this for you as a business owner, but it’s a good idea if you grasp the basics and how essential Google Search Console is for your site. Especially if your website is the primary source of leads. Even if your site is only for informational reasons, you must understand how it operates and what it does since it, in some ways, helps in marketing your company.
Since the birth of the Internet, digital marketing has been acknowledged as one of the most successful forms of marketing. As a marketer, using Google Search Console in conjunction with other tools provides them with the information they need to evaluate the site’s current ranking, evaluate existing marketing efforts, identify opportunities and finally work on planning marketing campaigns and plans to increase the website or company’s digital presence based on the reports generated and sites current standing.
Marketers and SEO professionals are quite similar. It’s just that their primary focus is on the content of a website and optimizing the site to enhance rankings and presence. They strategize for the site’s unique keywords, check the site’s content, and provide technical recommendations for the website’s development or enhancement. Using Google Search Console would provide them with the knowledge they want for examining the existing ranking and quickly analyzing and pinpointing what may require improvement for a certain site.
Google Search Console is useful not just for marketers, company owners, and SEO professionals, but also for developers. The tool provides features and reports for problems detected on a website. Developers will be able to identify and avoid potential issues, as well as design a healthy website that Googlebot can find and crawl for Google indexing.
